Grisoft and AVGSCANL

Post by ColinWood » Mon Feb 02, 2004 1:24 pm

Similar to Joe I contacted Grisoft's Tech Support and received the following back ....
Thank you for your email. I am really sorry but the avgscanl.exe file is NOT a original part of AVG program, therefore cannot be used together with AVG antivirus software. The AVGSCAN.EXE file will be corrected to support return codes in the next program update released in a short period of time.
So I'd be grateful if anyone is able to forward a copy of the AVGSCANL file (colin@imagescotland.com), alternatively I'll just have to wait for a future upgrade from AVG.

Cheers,

Colin

You could create a wrapper script that will call AVGSCAN and then send the proper error code to ME.

Since I don't use AVGSCAN, post a list of command line arguments and the contents of the LOG file when it detects a virus.

JohnN, karenk, or Brett Rowbotham:

If any of you still browse this board, can you send me a copy of the AVGSCANL file. I need it as soon as I can!!


Thanks,
Joe

I don't know if people will be able to send you a copy of AVGSCANL.EXE since that would probably violate the EULA.

However, I posted that it would be possible to wrap a script around the regular AVGSCAN.EXE so it will return the proper error code.

I am willing to write this wrapper script. But since I don't use AVGSCAN, I need somebody to post the list of command line arguments and a sample log file when it detects a virus.

I too received that reply from AVG on requesting the avgscanl program and would love to get a copy from anyone who has it until I can obtain the offically released version from Grisoft. :)
My address is br@talman.com.au

Looks like the new build of AVG7 is out and appears to be working fine but I have only tested it for 2 days.
